I dont know much about it but I hear Susanville is a pretty small area, last I rread it was something like 4,000 people. That could have changed though, in the past couple of years. And Reno is just a hop skip and jump away.

There are almost 18,000 people in Susanville, basically the only thing it has going for it is a state prison. If I were looking for 5 acres and thinking about going as far as Susanville I would just keep driving another hour and look in Northern Nevada.

I second the Weaverville area. Lots of nice property in the mountains and you are right by the Trinity River, which is my favorite river.

I have family living in the Susanville area. Its about 2 hours east of my home on Highway 36. I kind of like the area myself. Some people don't though. Its right on the edge between the east sierra/cascades pine forest and and the Great Basin Desert.

Be advised the 17K population includes the inmates incarcerated at the two prisons that were annexed (added to the City limits) to make them politically "pallatable". It turns out that at least some California state tax appropriations are based on population. So, the City of Susanville gets credit for all those who sleep within its boundaries; locked up or not.

Susanville is somewhat isolated-about 85 miles north of Reno, about 120 or so east of Redding. Because of the two prisons, there is a disproportionate ratio of correctional officers. Might be some social consequences associated with that. Also, the winters can be brutal-by California standards anyway.

As a side note, demographers have to be careful with California prison communities, lest they assume a population that'll support certain commercial businesses. Turns out inmates don't shop at "The Home Depot"...

You gotta feel like a fish swimming upstream with the exodus from this state though. Good luck with your search.

Did I say Calaveras County yet? Check out the small towns of Murphys, Angels Camp and Arnold. The other nice town would be in Amador County and it's called Sutter Creek.

I grew up in clear lake. Nice country towns around the lake. The biggest which is still small is Lakeport - want smaller go with Lower lake. They are diffinately cheap and country and community.

Want a bit bigger try Ukiah. I was born there and it hasnt changed much since the 50's.
You will love the small town appeal. People walk around downtown chatting. Very quaint and near wineries. Jobs are hard to find there but low cost homes for sure. Check it out you will be surprized.

Check into Paradise. I have never been there, but have been told by several people that it's lovely.

do you realize this thread is 2 years old? I am always amazed when they get brought back up. What do you think about the OP? Do you think he/she has found a place yet?

ps: by the way, I happen to think Fallbrook is a pretty cool town, yes some of the northern towns are great as well.
